What does Cold War-era Rocky Balboa, grizzled groundskeepers from schlocky 80s slasher films, Groundhog Day and forgotten comic books from the 1930s have in common?

Yep, they’re all naff, convoluted references we’ve spouted in our attempts to illustrate the life-affirming wonder of this new clobber from Y.M.C.

From sheepskin wonder-coats to tough twill coach jackets, all the way over to slick ripstop shirts, this lot have a knack for making clothes just the way we like ’em.

New York’s very own Adsum are the real deal.

Not only do they make some of the most sophisticated sportswear around (just look at those tasteful nylon popovers), but their robust plaid shirts have really earned them a seat at the proverbial workwear table.

Nice round buttons with an old-world stoutness usually missing from 21st century garments… big pockets… fabric tougher than a bowl of congealed porridge…

Surely this is proof of higher powers at work?
